danandsherree.com is built using Six Apart’s Movable Type 2.661. It’s good software, pretty easy to use, and free. (Well, it was free, anyway.)

When Movable Type 3.0 Developer Edition was announced I was left rather underwhelmed by it’s few new features. Plus, they started charging for it under certain conditions—which we meet. The “Developer Edition” part bugged me because there was no mention of a non-Developer Edition version—was this for general consumption? I had no interest in the upgrade.

Three months later and Movable Type 3.1 has been announced—a normal, non-Developer Edition, for the rest of us. The exciting part is that there are a number of new features I’ve been lusting after: subcategories, dynamic PHP publishing, and post scheduling. Plus some other nifty stuff.
